It’s official. Millennials are now the largest segment of America’s labor force. The Pew Center for Research reports that 56 million Millennials (individuals 22 to 36 years old) are currently either actively working or looking for work—eclipsing the 53 million Gen Xers and 41 million Baby Boomers still earning a paycheck. The changing of the multigenerational workplace landscape has brought a lot of dramatic shifts. While the cradle-to-grave mentality that defined Boomers is gone, don’t be lulled into thinking the time-honored “retirement” send-off is now an unnecessary nicety. To the contrary, it’s probably more important than ever.

For example, an introvert may be more comfortable with being acknowledged for a large accomplishment in front of their team, as opposed to the entire company during a meeting (whereas some extroverts might be thrilled with the latter option).

Employee Recognition

By Gene Park
When employees feel appreciated, it can significantly boost morale and employee engagement. Research shows that only 15% of employees say they are recognized frequently enough, and yet 80% of employees would work harder if they felt better appreciated. Even simple gestures like saying “thank you” or publicly acknowledging a job well done can boost retention. According to one study, this is more important than a salary increase!
